I just had the same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm here on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume that it took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge)then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is 3 weeks old, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me as well.

When the printhead goes bad sometimes the printer will not power up, if you can get to it you have to remove the inks and printhead and see if it powers up, if it does, don't put the printhead back in as you could damage the main logic board. Power supplies on these machines are very robust and seldom fail.

If it is only 3 months old, I recommend using the manufacturers warranty. The integrated Power Supply might be damaged.

Every few months the compressor will not come on. It will try over and over but will not start. At the same time, the light does not come on when the door is opened. I can unplug the power cord and plug it...


Hi!!
The lighting circuit and the compressor electrical circuit are independent from each other once they go past the electrical terminal block, (where the power cord connects to, on the back of the fridge).
For the description of the problem, it sounds like you have a loose power cord terminal connection at the block, a defective power cord or power outlet.
Try connecting the fridge on the other power outlet (if it is connected to a regular dual outlet ), some times the contactors, over time, tend to loose the grip on the power cord plug and the contact is lost, when you remove the plug from the outlet and plug it back in, restores temporarily the contact again, or, the plug itself can be defective and loses contact. Replacing the power cord and using a different power outlet (even if it is a dual) will let you know if that where the problem was. If that doesn't solve the problem, let me know and will do some more troubleshooting.
Good Luck and keep me posted.

well as they say they only build them to last until the warranty wears off. if the power supply is making a whining noise it might have blown. either you could buy a new one or as you said the repair center is 150 miles away.......

I have a Canon MP830 and I cannot turn it on when I touch the on off switch nothing happens I have checked all the power sources and they are plugged in; any suggestions?


1. If your MP830 is plugged into a power surge / power strip, power off/on the strip.

2. Plug the MP830 directly into the outlet.

3. Disconnect the power cord and wait 5 minutes before connecting

4. Replace the MP830 printer power cord.

5. Have the MP830 serviced.

Hope this helps.

When it wouldn't come back on after the electricity went off, I tried the suggested 20-minute rest for my Canon MP830. When I plugged the printer in again after 20 minutes, it was fine!

MP830 will not power on


Here is what Canon has to say:
Solutions for Printer won't power up Issue: The device does not power on

1. Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source 2. Disconnect the power cord and wait approximately 10 minutes 3. Press the ON/OFF button to power on the multifunction device 4. Disconnect and reconnect the electrical cord to ensure a secure connection 5. The MP830 may require repair 6. Try a different electrical source / outlet
Here is a snip of my notes on the same subject for an Epson printer:
Well, first things first I guess:

  1. Try the printer in a different outlet (other side of room, or similar, not same power Jack)
    1. If you have power here, your issue is likely the outlet, not the printer.
  2. If the power cord has an "on" LED, check to see if it is lit up while plugged in.
    1. If you have an LED with no light while it is plugged in, you are looking at a power adapter that is no longer working
  3. If there is no "on" LED to check, your next best bet is to take your printer and power cord to a store that sells printers, and ask if you can "try" a new chord before buying it. (most stores will allow this to keep customers happy)
  4. You may also want to check with the manufacturer if the chord is found to be bad, as some will send replacements free of charge.
  5. The last option is that there is an issue inside the printer. This is not likely, though it is possible. Most printers have an external power adapter that keeps any power issue outside of the printer, but I can't tell from the Canon site if this printer has one or not. (It would be a black box between the plug and printer.)
    1. This can also be checked by "testing" a new chord at a store. New chord, still no power, internal issue.
      1. If this is the case you will want to contact Canon if the unit is still under warranty.
-Hope this helps.

Canon i560s Power


Hi Dave,

It surely sounds like a strange issue as everything was working fine when you packed your printer.
In this kind of a scenario i will give you few steps and you can try them out.

- Unplugg the power cord and the data cord from the printer. ( I mean it should not be connected to the power and to the computer )
- Press and hold the power button on the printer for 20 seconds. ( You wont feel anything happening, its a way to drain out static charges from the printer )

- Plug in the power cord from both ends and make sure that its fitted properly.
- Try a different power outlet
- You may not have another power cord, if you have one try that as well.

Hope that this resolves your issue or you may have to take it back to the manufacturer.

Canon IPixma 4200 Won't Power On (occassional)


Go on an elimination hunt. Try connecting to a new power outlet altogether. If no go, try turning off and removing all cords, usb etc, reconnect. Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if this corrects it. Post agian if no good.
